Obama Pumpkins on Porches This Halloween

This is a new one, never seen a pumpkin carved into a shape of a Presidents head before. Creepy indeed!!

I’m going to carve my porch pumpkin that just says LOL.

Randy’s Right


As pumpkins line the front of my local market and appear on neighbors’ porches, I am reminded of the famous pumpkin described in Whittaker Chambers’ autobiography, Witness. A moving and beautifully written book containing much more than a tale of espionage and intrigue, Witness has had a profound impact on many conservatives, containing priceless words of wisdom while documenting a massive, tangled web of Communist infiltration into the U.S. government and mainstream media during the Cold War.

North Carolina House Republican Uses Anti-Gay Slurs, Calls Democrats "Fruitloops"

Is this who you want in charge of North Carolina?

According to the News & Observer's Under the Dome Blog, North Carolina House Republican Larry Brown "referred to gays as 'queers' and 'fruitloops'" an e-mail to Republican caucus members:

Brown was responding to an e-mail House Minority Leader Paul Stam of Apex sent to members of his caucus about House Speaker Joe Hackney getting an award from the Equality NC Foundation, a gay-rights group.

Brown sent his reply to nearly 60 e-mail addresses.

"I hope all the queers are thrilled to see him," said the message dated Sept. 27. "I am sure there will be a couple legislative fruitloops there in the audience."

Where the News & Observer gets it wrong, however, is in the details. Brown was hinting that some legislators are gay by calling them "fruitloops," not calling gays in general fruitloops. If you know anything about North Carolina politics, you know that the only legislators who attend the Equality NC gala will be Democrats.

This Republican member of the General Assembly is so juvenile that he's got to call his legislative opponents "gay."

Binker: Energy saving building codes back on the table?

In what may be a first in Governor Perdue's tenure, it appears that someone somewhere is actually listening to progressive voices who are concerned about the environment. Binker has the story.

The Building Code Council, a group of gubernatorial appointees, had voted to table the matter in such a way that the revision would be put on hold until 2015
... However, e-mails coming in from backers of the code today tell me that the council has partially reversed itself. Rather than tabling the energy code, they are sending the revision back to committee and making it ripe for another look in November or, more likely, December.

After Bathtub Accident, O'Donnell Changes Position

Dover, Delaware (FNS)—Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell shocked the crowd at a Delaware political breakfast meeting when she announced that she has changed her thinking about masturbation following a weekend bathtub “incident”.

Spike Fromula, O’Donnell’s press secretary, explained to the press gaggle today that O’Donnell now realizes that it is possible to “masturbate without lust in your heart” after Saturday night’s revelatory event, which Fromula described as a “slip and fall episode”.

“It wasn’t exactly ‘The Passion of the Showerhead’” said Fromula, in a reference to her former work as a marketing consultant to the Mel Gibson movie of a similar name, “but there is no doubt that her thinking on the issue has evolved”.

'What Do We Do Now?'-Robert Redford, 'The Candidate', 1972


Even Robert Redford didn't know what he wanted to do when he got 'elected' in 1972.

Maybe we all need to force our favorite candidates on both sides to be perhaps a little more specific as to what they would do. I prefer candidates who will say: "I will raise your taxes to pay for these new programs!' or 'I will cut other spending to pay for these new programs!' and then tell us what, when, how and where.

None of them do it and then we wonder why we have this $14 trillion national debt heading to $24 trillion by 2020?

Not hard to figure out why....

Tidal Wave of Spending Still to Come

With only four weeks left until the 2010 General Election, the big money is pouring in—for the GOP at least. McClatchy newspapers reported that the expected ratio of funds received for the last sprint to the finish line is 3-2 Republican to Democrat or perhaps as much as 2-1 Republican to Democrat.

In an article on the “Tidal Wave of Spending Still to Come,” McClatchy writer David Lightman said: “Half a billion dollars from independent groups with strong but unofficial connections to Republicans and Democrats is flooding into congressional campaigns across the country this year”, according to a study released Monday.
